Gotham, 2014 Fox New Shows


The Clown Prince of Crime is serving it something fierce. Shameless star Cameron Monaghan took to Instagram to tease the Joker in Gotham's upcoming second season, which is currently filming.

In February, Gotham boss Bruno Heller teased the Joker reveal will be long and satisfying for fans.

"I can tell you this is a long game plan and a long story that we are telling here. What I can promise you is this is not a bait-and-switch. This is not someone who is just a character who is going to disappear. This is not a red herring," he told us after a promo lit up the Internet. "It's the beginning of the story of how the Joker came to be, how the Joker was created, where he came from, who he is. Now, that doesn't necessarily mean that Cameron Monaghan is the Joker. He might be. But like I say, this is a story that begins about seven or eight years before the actual Joker arrives on the scene in his fully-fledged persona."

Just look at him.

In May, Heller teased there will be more Jerome/Joker in season 2. Other season two plans include new villains in James Frain and Jessica Lucas.

"We're going to find out how the hell Jerome, the proto-Joker we met earlier in this season, connects with the Joker as people known him," Heller told The Hollywood Reporter. "That's the big focus of the beginning of the second season. We're going to tell the story of how the Joker came to be."

Expect some scoop from Comic-Con. Stay tuned!

Gotham premieres Monday, Sept. 21 on Fox.
